The case of an alleged steroid dealer has been put off until next month.

Champion bodybuilder Phil Musson is accused of being a ``significant importer, manufacturer and supplier'' of performance and image enhancing drugs, including anabolic steroids in New Zealand.

At Christchurch District Court last December the 44-year-old entered not guilty pleas to 298 charges laid under the Medicines Act 1981.

Musson, of Bishopdale in Christchurch, was due back in court today.

But his case has been adjourned until March 14 for a status hearing.

The personal trainer is on continued bail.

Musson was named Mr New Zealand Athletic at the 2005 national championships, crowned Mr Christchurch Physique 2009 and competed in last year's National Amateur Bodybuilding Association Asia Pacific Bodybuilding champs.
